I spent a semester of law school at Stockholm University studying Private International Law and European Union Banking Law. I first joined Weir Bowen as a summer student and, after graduating from law school, commenced my articles with the firm.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf and hockey, doing yoga, and spending time with family and friends.
